KNCO Turkey Drive Success!

The 7th Annual KNCO Nevada County Food Bank Turkey Drive was a big success. For the first time in recent years the sun was shining. This year KNCO’s Tom Turkey- Tom Fitzsimmons and his sidekick Deana were collecting turkeys from generous Nevada County residents that were driving by the the corner of Dorsey Drive and East Main Street. Food Bank Executive Director Toni Thompson says the conditions contributed to a good day.
